I would like to get this to around 40 people, preferably long-standing members we all know. More peer pressure that way.

Come on Forum, who doesn't love a FREE-ROLL ? Let's win as much as we can and have ROMES parlay it into an even bigger payday for us. OR the WIZ for that matter, counting and betting until he gets a talking to.

Apparently, some people were not paying attention last time.

I am in.

The requirement to keep PM' s strictly confidential makes sharing votes problematic. If votes are shared, colluding becomes more difficult. Some clarification about what can be made public from PM' s will be required.

I can't quite remember exactly how it happened but this is how I remember it.

I offered to pump it up and perhaps double it given a few weeks. I was fairly confident I could since I had a few people who would help do some of the various new member's promotions and whatnot around town, including some good little bar gigs.

We were also doing the 1/2 parlays and I assumed we would could get down on that as well, especially with some help from all the people who were in town during that time.

I guess people wanted somthing different and went with Romes. IIRC Romes missed one of the best weeks ever for the 1/2 parlays. We certainly crushed it that week.

Basically, Romes FKED everyone in the___ that weekend (including a couple...OH, NVM).

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I feel like votes would have to be made via PM, then revealed publicially in the thread at the end of each round.

If it was 100% public voting in the thread, it would take forever to get everyone to vote because the final voters would get a huge advantage.

Count me in.

Take care out there. Spare a thought for the newly poor who were happy in their world just a few days ago, but whose whole way of life just collapsed..

Yup, it was week 7, 2016 season. We would have been 6 for six and would have had a few 4, 5 and 6 team cards.......... (Scroll half way down the page of the thread linked and you'll see the picks in my post)

It was one hell of a "what could have been" situations.

I think some people still don't know the difference between the actual cooperation game team vs the Romes parlay card team.........................................

I'm unfortunately going to be traveling a lot over the next month or so, so will not opt in to this game :(
